Why you'll love Guusto for Employee Recognition

We charge the merchants so you don't have to pay. Every dollar you spend actually goes to your employees! See our pricing for more options.

Learn more about Pricing

No more running to the store to buy gift cards, hand writing thank-you letters, sourcing merchandise or dealing with shipping delays! Rollout an impactful company wide program in one afternoon and start gifting in seconds with no employee training needed to redeem gifts!

Getting Started Guide

Stop waiting weeks for items to ship. Frequent and immediate recognition will encourage and reinforce desired behaviors! Deliver gifts when it matters most (for maximum impact!), with email, text, export, and print options, so no one is ever left out.

How Buying Gifts Works

No markups or shipping fees, meaning people get the rewards they deserve (stop paying $100 + shipping for something that retails for $70).

Set claim periods for unclaimed gifts to cancel automatically, or cancel manually anytime. This can account for huge savings over the course of the year (typically 15-20%)!

How Credit for Unclaimed Gifts Works

Give rewards that people actually value (ditch the pins and plaques!). Schedule service awards via bulk upload to be delivered on specific days. Notify managers to ensure they add a personal touch or to make a presentation.

How Sending Gifts for Milestones Work

Recipient gets to choose where to redeem from 60,000+ locations, and can split gifts across multiple merchants. Use phone or print it out (no app required), and they'll never lose it.

How Redemption Works

Align recognition with things your company cares about (e.g. core values, behaviors, goals) and mandate (if desired) that rewards only go out for those reasons.

How Gift Reasons Works

Ditch the labour intensive spreadsheets for expense & behavior tracking. Full visibility into everything (e.g. who buys, who claims, the reason, business unit, cost centre, etc). Quickly pull expense reports, taxable benefit reports, and insightful analytics to better understand where your company culture is excelling and the areas you need to improve.

Learn more about Reports

Empower managers and/or employees with budgets to send instant gifts when their team members and/or colleagues are performing at a high level. Immediate recognition is so much more effective than waiting for a distant performance review.

How Teams Work

Further employee engagement by making reward activity and messaging public for the whole Team to see. Setup one Team or multiple Teams, each with their own administrator.

How Public Settings Work

Empower colleagues to recognize each other with non-monetary nominations. Further employee engagement by making nomination activity public for the whole Team to see.

Team admins, or managers with budgets, can then send Guusto gifts based on nominations and leaderboards. Run regular contests or enter team members in a draw for a larger prize. The possibilities are endless!

How Nominations Works

We understand that companies often have team members who aren't comfortable with computers. With web, mobile and offline solutions, no-one is left out, regardless of age or computer competence. We work with companies who have 5-generations of employees!

How Printing Gifts Works

Just want to send a gift to someone, and mandate that they give it to someone else (great for one-off peer-peer campaigns)? Maybe you'd like each of your store managers to pass a gift on to their employee of the month. We have that option too.

How Pay-it-Forward Works

Order gifts in bulk and send via email, text message, print, or export gift URL links to send through your own systems. If you need a lot of gifts, contact us to connect with our API.

Learn more about Delivery Options

You and your team can recognize employees on-the-go with the Guusto App. Send gifts from the app and they will appear on your records in Guusto Web.
